“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality”

-Desmond Tutu

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"

-Nelson Mandela
